A fantastic afternoon of racing at Tullyroan Oval on Sunday heralded the start of 2022 in style. Young Londonderry star David Gurney came out on top of the headlining Big Van Bangers as he took the aptly named ‘Van-dalism 2022’ title. An action packed Rookie Bangers New Year Challenge fell to Garvagh’s Stephen Boyd, whilst the other feature race winners of the afternoon were Portadown’s World Champion Nigel Jackson in the Lightning Rods, Cloughmills driver Sean Mark in the Superstox and up and coming Dungannon driver Aaron Dynes in the Junior Productions.

As always at the New Year meeting, the Big Van Bangers topped the programme. The Van-dalism 2022 race was first up and saw an entertaining encounter, as Stevo McGrath did his best to block the track and take out as many others as he could! David Gurney survived all the attempts to remove him, taking the win in style over Brian Mullen in his huge bus and Rodney Herron.
McGrath and Tony Gillespie did their best to destroy each other in an action-packed Allcomers race, with McGrath taking the chequered flag as Gillespie’s van all but disintegrated! Tony somehow returned it for the Destruction Derby, but he was beaten into submission by Simon Lamont who took a fine win. Gillespie was quite rightly awarded the Best Wreck and Entertainer of the Day awards.

A huge field of Rookie Bangers produced some spectacular action with almost 40 cars on track for the opening heat. Dublin star Deano McGrath raced to the heat one victory over Gavin Gamble, before Gamble then took a fine win in heat two over Ryan Nixon and Matthew Nicholl in another action packed encounter.
The final was a superb race, with John Goligher and Stephen Boyd disputing the lead entering the final stages. Goligher went ahead at what looked like the perfect time with a lap to go, but Boyd came steaming back into the final bend, punting Goligher wide and into two parked cars. Boyd took a sensational last gasp win, with Goligher managing to get home in second ahead of William McFaul.

Formula debuts for brothers Ryan and Jordan Dilly plus a welcome visit from Kieran Burke bolstered the Lightning Rods field on a very slippery raceway, with every race of the day only decided on the very last lap! Mark McCambridge led most of heat one before losing out to James McKinney right at the death, and then Nigel Jackson just pipped Ally Neill to the flag in a drag race out of the last bend to take the heat two spoils.
In the final it was Ethan Dilly who led the way for much of the distance, but once Jackson broke free from the pack he began closing in at quite some rate. He arrived on Dilly’s bumper with a lap to go, and found a run up the inside to out drag Ethan to the line to grab the victory by the smallest of margins – 0.025 seconds.

Amongst the Superstox grid were debuts for Nathan Clarke and Saloon Stock Car star Ryan Wright, as former World Champion Lee Davison proved to be the man to beat on the treacherous surface. Lee swooped past long time leader Sean Mark to take the opening heat win with Kyle Beattie in third, before repeating the feat in heat two. Jordan Robinson was runner up this time ahead of David Beattie.
Disaster struck for Davison in the final as he hit mechanical problems early on and his hat-trick hopes were dashed. Mark made a fine start from the yellow grade once again, and this time Sean wouldn’t be caught as the Cloughmills man took the flag and the silverware to mark his return to form in some style. Robinson and Craig McConnell filled the podium places ahead of Steven Haugh, Brian Lammey and Nathan Beattie.

Welcome Scottish visitors Liam Loggie and Jack MacLeod joined the Junior Production regulars for the day, with the field also boosted by debutant Jake Devlin. It took three attempts to get the opening heat underway as the youngsters struggled on the greasy track, and once they did get going they produced a cracking race! Aaron Dynes led early on before the chasing pack of star names caught up towards the end. Jack Morrow went ahead before he tangled with Chelsy Rainey, which opened the door for Loggie to take a superb victory. Rainey and Dynes filled the places ahead of a demoted Morrow.
Morrow made no mistake in heat two, taking a great win ahead of Dynes and Declan O’Connor. The final saw Dynes make an early break for the front, and despite the best efforts of the chasing Morrow and O’Connor, Aaron held on to record a very popular win, the first feature race victory of his career.

Templepatrick’s Ben McKee produced an excellent drive in difficult conditions to claim the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup for the National Hot Rods at an excellent festive Aghadowey Oval meeting last Monday afternoon.

With a descending fog and a greasy track making the going very tricky, Ben showed the field a clean pair of heels to run out a clear winner. Other feature race winners were Ballymena’s Daniel Rodgers in the Thunder Rods, rising Cullybackey star Keegan Turtle in the Ninja Karts, Glenavy’s Dan Shannon in the Stock Rods and Bleary’s Drew McKeown in the 2.0 Hot Rods. The entertaining Caravan Destruction Derby fell to Strabane's Tony Gillespie.

A great field of sixteen National Hot Rods gathered to contest Round 6 of Simpson Race Exhausts World Series NI and the Richard Turtle Memorial Cup. It is held each year in memory of the popular former star driver from Cullybackey. Amongst the grid was welcome Dublin visitor Les Compelli. Barry Stephen was the man to watch during the heats, the Scotsman grabbing the opener over Carl Sloan and John Christie before heading Shane Murray and Nigel McCauley home in heat two.
The final saw Stephen take the early lead until he was challenged by Ben McKee as they approached mid distance. After a tussle McKee went ahead, and pulled well clear as he revelled in the slippery conditions. A huge battle ensued for second, which finally fell the way of National Champion Derek Martin after a great outside run, with Stephen third ahead of Christie and Murray. Such was McKee’s lead that he was right amongst this battle to lap them as the chequered flag fell.

As always, the Stock Rods were on top form with the opening heat featuring a superb multi-car dice for the lead. Thomas Morrison held sway out front with Stevie McNiece, Victor McAfee, Mark Crawford and Jonny Cardwell just some of those attempting to get past. McNiece made the outside move stick with just three to go to claim a great win over Morrison and Crawford. Heat two saw McAfee set the pace for much of the way, before Cardwell found a gap on the last lap to claim the win over Victor and Stevie McNiece.
The final again saw a titanic battle out front, with Morrison holding sway before he went out with a puncture. That elevated McNiece to the lead but he then lost out to Crawford on the Brown Trout Bend. In the final analysis, Crawford was demoted by the Stewards for the manner in which he took the lead. That handed victory to second over the line Dan Shannon, ahead of Cardwell, the relegated Crawford and the very unlucky McNiece.


Three eventful races from the 2.0 Hot Rods entertained the crowds, with Garvagh’s Johnny McCloy breaking clear to win heat one over British Champion Conor Hughes and Irish Champion Jordan Rochford. Gary Fowler led heat two early on, before NI Points Champion Drew McKeown raced ahead to win over McCloy and Rochford.
The final saw a great battle between McCloy and McKeown for the lead, before they were joined by Hughes to make it a three way scrap. Hughes almost got past McCloy, but as they were side by side they ran wide which a driver of McKeown’s calibre was always going to seize upon. He nipped inside them both and ahead to take the silverware over Rochford and McCloy.

A full field of twenty Thunder Rods took to the grid, with returnee David Reynolds from Clough taking a tough fought heat one win over Daniel Rodgers and Ryan Murphy. An eventful second heat fell to Ricky Bradley over Murphy and Rodgers, and heading into the feature race final it was a tough call as to who would take the honours. On his comeback meeting, it was Ballymena driver Rodgers who was the man on a mission, as he relegated early leader Clifford Gordon to take a decisive win. Murphy and Gordon completed the placemen.

The Ninja Karts field was bolstered by England’s Jack Jones and Scottish racers Kenzie Bell and Tommy Melrose. The racing was fantastic all afternoon from the 6-11 year olds, with Crumlin’s Riley Dawson-Stirling taking the opening heat over World Champion Leyton Hughes and Keegan Turtle. Heat two saw Riley take his second win of the day, coming through late to snatch the victory with Hughes and Turtle again the placemen.
The final was a contender for race of the day, with Caolan Fegan setting a blistering pace out front with Charlie Johnston and Turtle chasing hard. The star men were struggling to get on terms from the rear of the grid, leaving the leading trio to fight it out between them. Just as he looked to have the trophy in the bag, Fegan hesitated ever so slightly in the backmarking traffic allowing the others to close on the run to the line. It was a real blanket finish with Turtle getting the nod and the winner’s trophy by just 0.042 seconds! Fegan had to make do with second ahead of Johnston and Hughes.

The exciting Caravan Destruction Derby completed the holiday programme, with the drivers driving through and over each other to absolutely destroy the caravans. The entertaining event was won by Tony Gillespie from Strabane with Ballymoney’s Ian Bolton starring with a big rollover to end his chances.
